Straight apple juice smell. Even tastes like it but there is a hop, caramel finish. STRONG HEAD and LACING. this is impressive... Recommended by a jewish bartender, he knows my GERMAN tastes!

12 oz. can poured into tight nonic
(6/28/2018 born-on date printed on bottom of can)

L: clear copper, plenty of amber in it, short but thick head of offwhite/beige foam; no major sticking or lacing; keeps a consistent collar of offwhite foam

S: barley, grain, musty yeasty grain, sweet bread, peach; as it warms it settles into a dusty peach

T: yeasty earthy hops, peach, orange peel ... plenty of barley flavor throughout; as it warms and the palate adjusts, caramel, lots and lots of caramel

F: fantastic all around, decent carbonation but not too much, nice heft

O: for an 8-month-old beer, pretty dang good ... their might be a hint of metallic can flavor in there, but that also could be from the yeast; the age has allowed the malt to settle in very nicely, yet the earthy bitter hops are having no trouble cutting through and offering a good bite to balance out the sweetness; shockingly quaffable for an almost-7% brew
